Underneath everything, there is love. Love is present in the depths of our souls. We often forget our capacity to love when we loose a loved one, go through heartbreaks, or difficult times.  Feelings of resentment, anger, sadness, anguish, and so on take over. Life could feel like a burden. Intense emotions not only bring our energy down but also could feel like or become tangible physical pain that manifests in our bodies. It feels like the end of the world. Often we blame and hate others for our suffering and pain.   

Reality is that harboring negative emotions only causes more suffering to us. We always have a choice. Choice is ours, whether we want to connect with love or connect with negative emotions. Connecting with love doesn’t mean that others are not accountable for their actions or behaviors or we don’t feel any negative emotions. No!! it means that we bring nourishment to our beings.

Take a moment, close your eyes, and notice how you are feeling. Now think about a time when you felt love, or someone or something you love a lot. Bring that feeling into your consciousness and let it spread into you. Notice the difference within you. Make a conscious note to yourself to bring your attention back to this feeling of love.
